Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Griffin Dunne

Biography & Memoir • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Griffin Dunne's narration of his memoir pairs a tender conversational tone with occasional moments of drama that embrace his gifts as a writer and actor, as well as the cast of vivid characters he portrays. Dunne augments his rich material with intonations, pacing, and tension that fully engage. Whether he's telling stories of privileged, Hollywood familiars, political well-knowns, family members, or famed relatives like writers John Gregory Dunne and Joan Didion, each vignette commands attention for its narrative worth, rather than the celebrity mentions. Whether he writes of his sister's murder and the trial that followed or his own sexual awakening, Dunne transitions from one scenario to the next, stitching stories into a powerful arc that compels from beginning to end. Dunne's acting chops, writing instincts, and raconteur heritage are always evident. S.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2024]
